  2. Put all the ingredients except the macadamia nuts in a food processor and blend until smooth. Remove the blade from the food processor, then add the nuts to the bowl. Roughly stir with a spoon to combine.
  3. Transfer the mixture to the loaf tin and spread evenly. Bake for 20–25 min until golden and the middle is just firm but still a little squidgy.
  4. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Slice into 6, then cut each slice in half again.
